Lexington, MO - Two Injured in Rollover Accident on Garrison Rd
Lexington, MO (November 22, 2020) - On Sunday, November 22nd a single-vehicle rollover accident on MO-13 in the city of Lexington caused injuries to two vehicle occupants.
Police reports show that, at about 12:55 a.m., for reasons that have yet to be determined, the driver of a 2005 Ford Five Hundred that was traveling southbound along MO-13 near the intersection for Garrison Road suddenly lost control of the vehicle. The Ford then skidded off the east side of the roadway and rolled over before finally coming to rest in a nearby field.
The driver, a 19-year-old female, and her passenger, a 21-year-old male, both residents of Higginsville, were transported via ambulance to Centerpoint Hospital in Independence. Both victims sustained injuries that were classified as moderate.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
